The British Virgin Islands continues to be a major player in the global financial environment with the establishment of BVI House Asia.
At the recently held 2015 Asian Financial Forum, BVI Business was one of the highlights where BVI House Asia was a Premium Hospitality Booth Sponsor. The two-day forum welcomed more than 2,400 people and over 100 distinguished international speakers to discuss the theme, “Asia: Sustainable Development in a World of Change.”
Businesses and organisations, including registered and not-yet-registered non-profit organisations are encouraged to continue participating in the ongoing National Risk Assessment (NRA) exercise currently being conducted in the Territory.
The NRA exercise is confidential and information gathered will not be used for any other purpose; any information provided to NRA assessment teams is maintained solely by the NRA and will be kept in the strictest confidence.
On August 12 of this year, the Government of the Virgin Islands engaged the services of global management consultants - McKinsey & Company – to undertake a Financial Services Management Consultancy. This engagement is to help chart a new direction in the BVI financial services industry, and was as a result of financial services stakeholder meetings held early on in my administration.
